NIGERIAN TROOPS EXCHANGE GUNFIRE WITH POLICE ? (story)


What in the world is going on over in Nigeria? How bad is it when Nigerian National Troops have an all out war in the streets with their own Police? Nigeria, it seems can never shake the anarchy and corruption it has fought so hard to end there. It as a country rich with technology and commerce, I hope one day can pull to the world front and lead West Africa out of economic despair and towards a "Brighter Future".

Nigerian police clash with troops

Three Nigerians have died in clashes in Lagos as soldiers fought running battles with police.
The dead were civilians caught in the crossfire of a battle that began when a soldier tried to stop a policeman demanding a bribe, reports said.
The police officer hit out at the soldier, who raised the alarm at a nearby barracks, sparking violence.
Soldiers and police then exchanged live fire across the main highway in Lagos, the country's largest city.
Some 60 vehicles, including 20 police cars, were set ablaze during the clashes.
Troops were reported to have stormed a police station, setting it on fire and freeing scores of prisoners.
